But you need to know how to legally do it to avoid landing up at the CCMA! Picture this... Your driver Tim skips a red robot to get to your supplier before they close on Friday and collides with another car. What a mess!

This minor mishap is going to cost your company R5 000 in insurance excess and a traffic fine of R1 500! That's a total of R6 500 you have to pay because of damages your employee caused. But this isn't the first time Tim's cost your company money. You let the other time slide because he was new on the job, but this time, you want him to take responsibility for his mistake. So you give him the money, and he agrees that he'll pay it back. Read on to find out what happened with Tim...

What happened with Tim?
After three months, you're still waiting for payment. So how do you go about actually retrieving the R6 500 he owes you? Do you write that R6 500 off as a financial loss? No! You deduct it from his salary! And that's why most employers think the obvious thing to do is just deduct the amount Tim owes from his salary. But it's not that easy!



Deducting money from your employees can land you at the CCMA!
